Akiyoshi Yasuda ‘’Key’’ - simple, beautiful, unique

Akiyoshi Yasuda, who has once before been featured on our blog, returns with another neoclassical wonder entitled ‘’Key’’.

While the core melody throughout this whole piece is nothing but an octave, it is the recording of it that makes it unique. It would seem that the inner body of the piano has been mic’ed up with the most sensitive microphones on the market, which then turns the piano into a rhythmical instrument alongside it being a melodic one. Beautified by distant drones the song moves effortlessly along it’s core idea, eventually changing the theme for a few bars, only to return back into the octave-based theme enriched with all the peculiar sounds of the piano mechanics.

Unique, definitely worthy your attention and available at the link below:
